Bands Battle for Recognition Beyond the Schoolyard

CMMEvents 15 October 2014

The CIT School Stars Band Competition is shaping up to be a great night with many young bands from across the A.C.T ready to battle it out to be named this year’s champions.

By developing their live performance skills and receiving feedback from music industry judges, the night serves as a fantastic opportunity for school-aged musicians (years 7-12) to kick-start their careers.

The punk rock band ‘Casters’ from Lake Tuggeranong College were one of last year’s winners and said their experience was a positive one.

“We had hardly performed much before it, so School Stars was a decent atmosphere to do so” says lead singer Dave Mueck. Casters have now gone on to perform regularly at venues around Canberra.

There are great prizes up for grabs including studio recording time at the CIT Music Industry Centre, a CIT Music Industry Centre scholarship and short course gift vouchers.

All performers receive a free DVD of their live performance which is a great addition to any young person’s portfolio.

This event is proudly sponsored by local music magazine BMA and local community radio stations, 2XX 98.3FM and ValleyFM; offering the winning acts free promotion within the local music scene.

The competition is being held Thursday October 30th from 6pm at the CIT Music Industry Centre (MIC), Woden Campus. Entry is free.

Registrations are still open til Monday October 20th with a few places left!
